(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Zhang Yang was an employee of Qinhuangdao City Rail Road Vehicle Parts. He was Union Chairman. Zhang Yang has been a good person based on Falun Dafa's principles - "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance". He was given awards for outstanding performance every year. One night in the middle of May 2001, police, led by Chief Xia Qian of the Qinhuangdao City Police Department and Vice Chief Peng Luyan, broke into his home and took his whole family to the police station. Zhang Yang was sentenced to 12 years in prison. He is now in the Beijiao Prison in Shijiazhuang City. More details follow:
One night in the middle of May 2001, a group of people suddenly broke in. The first to enter was policeman Tian Peichun (later rewarded and promoted to Director for his role in persecuting Falun Gong). Another policeman whose last name was Wang followed. They didn't show any warrant, and broke into a citizen's home. They broke the law as law enforcement officials. They threw Zhang Yang to the floor and handcuffed him. Then they started to search every room. They took away Master's photo, all Falun Dafa books, CDs, tapes and Falun Dafa materials. They didn't even let Zhang Yang wear his coat and trousers. Zhang Yang was only wearing a vest and underwear and was pushed into the police car. Just like this, all three members of this family were taken to the police department and interrogated through the night.
Zhang Yang was beaten the next day. Falun Dafa practitioner Yin Hongqing was also beaten. His face was swollen and his eyes were full of blood. He could not walk normally anymore. A female practitioner, Wu Xingfei, was beaten up even more seriously. There was no uninjured part on her face or her body. She said the police from Shanhaiguan beat her. Wherever she was transferred, she was beaten each time she was interrogated. Some practitioners heard her screaming while she was beaten.
The day after Zhang Yang was abducted, police took two computers, one of which was newly purchased for his son, and a new computer desk from his home. Two days later, the police again searched his home and took another old computer, speakers and a small sound system. During the several days the police went to Zhang Yang's home, they also took away his son's game console.
One morning three weeks later, policeman Tian Peichun brought two people to take the TV from Zhang Yang's home. Zhang Yang's wife asked them why. Tian said, "There's no why. Maybe some leader is not happy with you." Zhang Yang's family tried to stop them, but they still took away the TV. They also took Zhang Yang's wife to the police department, and on the same day they took her to a detention center. The Qinhuangdao City Police Department's 610 Office then persecuted Zhang Yang's wife and sentenced her to prison. She is detained in the Baoding City Prison of Hebei Province.
Zhang Yang was sentenced to 12 years in prison and is now held in the Beijiao Prison in Shijiazhuang City. In 2004, because Zhang Yang read one of Master Li's articles, he was put in confinement for two weeks with his hands cuffed and feet shackled. He is detained in the 9th team of the Beijiao Prison in Shijiazhuang City.
We hope all practitioners who read this news will send forth righteous thoughts and help Zhang Yang eliminate all evil factors persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners, and help him come back into the magnificent wave of Fa-rectification and saving sentient beings.
